Be a Responsible Serve (BARS) Program Offered Free for Area Businesses

Learn how to serve alcohol responsibly.
Rodney Parker, local Alcohol Law Enforcement agent for District 1, will be conducting a one-hour FREE “Be a Responsible Server” (BARS) program for all area merchants and businesses that sell or serve alcohol. This program will be held on Monday, March 15th, from 6:30 to 7:30 pm at The City Wine Sellar, Bakery, Deli & Wine Bar, located at 102 N. Water Street, Elizabeth City.

The BARS program focuses on the responsible service and sale of alcoholic beverages. Agent Parker will cover topics specific to business owners, such as how to protect your business by following NC laws, happy hour laws, and hours of sale. A very important component of the program will be the discussion relative to the sale of alcohol to underage or intoxicated persons, including how to recognize fake or altered IDs. “It’s extremely important to train your servers on how to properly identify underage drinkers, as well as those already intoxicated. They must know when NOT to serve someone in order to protect themselves and the business owner from liability, but, more importantly, help protect that person and the community,” says Agent Parker.

This program is open to any and all businesses that sell or serve alcohol. Business owners are invited and encouraged to send employees. Attendance is limited to 60, so please RSVP to 252-267-6920.
